Top Hat is online teaching software that allows you to teach effectively online within your classroom and lecture environment
As instructors move towards making their learning environments more digital and collaborative, the need for reliable technology in the classroom becomes increasingly important. That’s where Top Hat’s online teaching software comes in. It transforms smartphones, laptops, and tablets into teaching tools, allowing educators to create a robust, engaging classroom for the learner.
Our online teaching software syncs directly with the devices your students already own and use on a daily basis. There’s no need for them to purchase additional hardware. Simply download our app and away you go. We also offer integrations with popular learning management systems, including Moodle, Blackboard and Desire2Learn.
Instructors can automatically verify whether a student is physically present in class. They can easily take attendance using our online teaching software by prompting students to sign in on their devices using a unique code. Instructors can auto-assign grades for attendance. Top Hat uses proprietary market-leading technology to verify the physical location of students, ensuring that only those students attending get counted. And, we also built in excused absence options for flexibility.
Enhance your teaching methods by using Top Hat to offer a synchronous lecture with a focus on student-centered learning.
Instructors can sync their lecture slides with students’ devices, allowing them to follow along in real-time.
Students are unable to move ahead of the instructor, so their attention remains focused on what’s being presented.
You can share student responses and correct answers to questions posed in class using visual graphs, word clouds and heat maps.
Online teaching software is designed for instructors to teach courses in an online environment with existing hardware they already use. Top Hat helps facilitate a more active classroom, with instructors able to add content, easily create polls, take attendance and more.
